Danzig Gestapo HQ


Between 1939 and 1945, the Gestapo in Danzig (now Gdansk) had its headquarters Okopowa 9. Its first head was SS-Obersturmbannführer Rudolf Tröger, who was also the head of Einsatzkommando 16, a command that participated in mass executions of the Polish intelligentsia.

Current status: Preserved (2016).

Address: Okopowa 9, 80-819 Gdansk.

Get there: Tram.

My comment:

Above the main entrance, it is still possible to read the German, Polizeipräsidium, although there have been attempts to hide the text.

Follow up in books: Höhne, Heinz: The Order of the Death’s Head: The story of Hitler’s SS (1969).
